candidate of change. we've heard it more because barack obama made it such a big deal four years ago. and mitt romney is trying to appropriate that. what's even more interesting about this closing argument is after the most negative campaign that we've seen probably in our lifetimes they are closing with a very soft sale to independent voters saying i can break the gridlock. it's ok that there are republicans, democrats. i'm going to be the one that can get us beyond that. it's two things, it's to appeal to independents. but another piece of it is the growing realization that congress is going to be divided regardless of who is elected as president and this next president has to deal with a divided government. gwen: i wonder how much of this is about economic development and the jobs numbers can play into that. people are saying they feel good about the economy even though they don't trust the president. >> i see these job numbers as basically being status quo. they can affect things in a big way. the decimal point kicked up one point but the actual job number was a little higher than for

approaching and the next four years will be determined in just the next four days. the latest abc news poll shows mitt romney leading by one point. and while president obama enjoys overwhelming up port from african-americans, it's complicated. a new documentary series asking, will those same voter who propelled him to victory in 2008 turn out again? here's abc's pierre thomas for your voice, your vote. >> what he represented to a nation of kids was hope. >> in this campaign ad released today, superstar rapper jay-z encourages black voters to get out the door and into the polling booth for barack obama. >> i'm barack obama and i approve this message. >> reporter: with a 96% approval rating among black voters, though -- >> four more years! four more years! >> reporter: you may wonder why it's necessary. the reason? while support for the president among the democratic faithful remains high, this time, there's a decidedly different feel than that of election night 2008, a historic moment for the country as a whole, but a particularly meaningful one in the african-american community. >

roots of conservatism -- after eight years of bush in four years of obama, i'm not sure what conservatives or liberals stand for. one of the basis of conservatism is the idea that we are not perfectible, you're not really going to get any changes in behavior and are not going to be able to social engineer any great differences in the way that people are. you know, i think that is a valuable thing. i would like to see it in action. i'm going to vote for gary johnson, not really excited about this election. but when i look at what has budged in terms of things i'm interested in, it hasn't been coming so much from the cato institute by the tea party and ron paul that have really pushed the core libertarian issues to the forefront. the point we're talking about the fed is no longer crazy talk. i appreciate that. most people come out of the conservative side. i would like to see someone from the liberals, so bill, get work them and want to thank everyone for coming. i would like to thank my colleagues. this is a very interesting election and the first in my lifetime when a candida

, barack obama. that is exactly whey feared four years ago when got eledged. wasn't prepared to lead this country. we still don't have an answer to the the simple question did the president of the united states know about the two prior attacks on that consulate. if he did know about the two prior attacks, the then what te heck did he do about it? why didn't he give more security to the council and why was he ignoring the fact that the british had to pull out? why was he ignoring the prior attacks. it would be a tragedy if this election takes place and the president isn't required to answer those questions and then we get some kind of answer later that we are going to be very unhappy with. >> greta: i don't understand even though and i know you have respect for the fbi and so do i and they didn't get in for two or three weeks in the area but now we he learn that last week foreign policy journalists go back to the scene after it has been tampered with, walked through, contaminated or whatever and find two draft letters by the ambassador of the united states in which he talks about his

heartland, you may think the jobs report has been a boost for president obama, he won ohio four years ago. and the economy overall is doing better than the rest of the country. but voters are still undecided. and as poppy harlow heard, there are still concerns. >> we basically started this in a run-down garage. >> reporter: that was 33 years ago, how is business? >> slow. >> reporter: you see, kevin has watched the business at his metal company fall and fall, down 20% this year. >> mid-2012, it started to slow down. and it has been a downward trend ever since, probably may. >> reporter: but his iowa is not the iowa the economic numbers illustrate, largely spared by the housing crisis, reaping the benefits of a strong farming sector, and unemployment well below the national average. >> i realize here, we're not bad in iowa. but our customer basis not basically in iowa. >> reporter: matters how california looks and how nevada and virginia looks. >> right. >> it is difficult for mitt romney to say this economy is in free fall, it is not. unemployment rate here is pretty darn good, 5.2%,

to recognize that president obama inherited two wars and a crumbling economy and that they are willing -- they recognize that four years was not enough of a timetable and they are lwilling to let him attempt to turn it around. >> how much does voter oppression -- >> that's an interesting point. with the african-american community, we just saw in florida, one polling presignature, 1,000 votes through some computer glitch that could be explained, voting oppression was a key issue with some african-american voters that had not supported president obama, being ticked off, being really mad and looking at this as a republican tactic to suppress their votes and now they are going to be full scale with president obama. >> belva: as we wrap this up, have any of you seen an election light this one in your years of working? >> no, never. this is one for the books. >> not at all. >> well, the dynamics are just so unusual. how many times do you have this many storylines coming together, with the economy, with jobs, with the contentious race with a divided elector rate and with really no act
